All Tied Up: Tongue Tie Beyond the Mouth
Oral ties are often diagnosed and released during infancy to improve the breastfeeding relationship between mother and baby. But what happens if ties go undiagnosed? This course will review tethered oral tissues and their relationship in a breastfeeding dyad and the neurodevelopment of an infant and beyond. We will explore the implications of oral restrictions on the myofascial system throughout the body. Movement patterns, posture, and primitive reflex integration can all be affected by oral ties. Signs, symptoms, assessment tools, and strategies for co-management between IBCLC and bodyworkers will be discussed. Attendees will also learn neuro-biomechanical implications of TOTs beyond breastfeeding. Several case studies will be discussed and how successful management can be achieved with a team approach.
